The Widow’s Offering

The widow’s offering of a penny was made out of love and of the little on which she had to live. In the same way, the widow at Sidon was willing to share her little with the prophet Elijah.
We are called never to be afraid to give generously to God, who will always provide for us. All our gifts are to be given lovingly and generously.

The Poverty of Riches

Rich people may be too preoccupied with their worldly possessions to follow Christ. He tells us that those with riches find it hard to enter the kingdom of God, but the most important thing is to be wise through God’s word and see wealth and material things in their proper perspective. Then we will come to appreciate the richness of poverty for Christ’s sake.

The commandments of God

Christ did not come to set aside God’s commandments but to fulfil them. He shows us how we are to act in order to witness to the power of God’s word within us.
Faith without good works is dead, and we show we are God’s people by our care of those in need, rather than by adhering to human rules and traditions.
